After the Ultraviolet FW’16 presentation in Paris, we met with Micol Ragni, the designer behind unconventional London based label, who gave us a glimpse of her own unique way of approaching fashion, where a party on a distant galaxy is the perfect stage for her new collection.
Tell us something about your last Autumn/Winter 16 collection.
The last collection was inspired by the colour purple first of all. It is a colour I meditate on when I feel anxious and it instantly gives me a sense of peace and relaxation. I used a range of velvet, silk, soft cashmere and fringe fabrics to translate that same feeling into a tactile sensation.
The sculptural pieces are ceremonial with a techno-futuristic look that contrast with the retro look of the velvet. I like oppositions and I like to bring various elements together that kind of looks wrong or too far apart.
While designing this collection I was trying to picture what a being from a distant galaxy would wear to go out raving.
